[In Consideration] IBD and Cancer. Available Treatments?

For those with active IBD that have had cancer what treatments are available to them?

(Meaning treatments that exist, if any, beyond the immunosuppressant level)

Dusty, when you say, "beyond the immunosuppressant level" are you asking biologics?

Do you want to specify the type or cancer and remission or active or keep it broad?

As far as I know treatments up to and including immunosuppressants are safe (thinking of the step up pyramid here)?? So yes biologics and anything else that may be out there.

No specific cancer.
